Check Out the Korean Version of the Avengers

White Fox

New Avenger, White Fox

Avengers: Electric Rain is Korean webcomic by creator Yeong-Hoon Goh that follows the Avengers on an adventure to South Korea to fight buildings that come to life. No shit.

If you’ve never read manhwa, or Korean comics, get a taste of them here with motion lines and Korean myth alongside the comforting familiarity of the Avengers. You’ll also get to try the new online vertical strip format called a webtoon. It’s ideal for mobile consumption and seems to keep the story moving.

Finally you’ll meet the newest Avenger, White Fox, who is moving into Marvel continuity proper soon.

Read the translated version of Avengers: Electric Rain over at Pop Mythology. It just might scratch that manga or superhero itch, or both. Black Widow’s a bit much though.
